the taste of colors

(PS today is my last day of class for Block 1 of Nursing School!  Incidentally I have already started one of my two summer classes.  No break for me!)

Sean participated in his school's Science Project this year for the first time.  He tested whether the color of our foods influences the way foods taste to us.  He gave test subjects Sprite colored in red or blue food coloring without telling them that they were drinking the same thing.  Most people did have an opinion on which tasted better!
